From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV.
For a long time I resisted all forms of social media. In my mind, it seemed like a waste of time (not to mention an invasion of privacy). After many years of fighting it, I finally gave in and opened a Facebook account. Much to my surprise I enjoyed the interaction with friends and past acquaintances. I quickly learned that privacy was only an issue if I made it an issue. In other words, I could choose to share as much, or as little, as I wanted.
When I began traveling full-time in an RV, it quickly became apparent that social media could enhance my travels.
I started connecting with my fellow RVers through their Facebook pages, Instagram and Twitter accounts. I joined Facebook groups where I gleaned advice from seasoned travelers and learned about new places to camp.
Today I embrace social media as a way to make make connections (both online and in person), learn new things while on the road, and share my experiences with others.
If you are a reluctant social media user like I was, come along for the journey. You might just change your mind.
